Recommended camera for with recorded backup and motion sensing

AnimalHungry 2 months ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated 2 months ago 2

I currently have some Ring cameras integrated into my SmartThings network. I really like how they trigger video recording and notifications based on motion sensing, and being able to review videos from over a month ago is really great, but I’m frustrated that they don’t display on ActionTiles on my Fire 8 tablet.

I want to add some more cameras and view the feeds in ActionTiles, but need the motion sensing recording and alert functionality of the Ring cameras. Can anyone recommend what I should use to get this working with Action Tiles please. If need be I can install separate motion sensors and have SmartThings trigger the camera to record based off of the motion sensors, but it’d obviously be nicer to have motion sensing built into the cameras. 

Cheers

The most popular camera for your basic requirements is the Wyze Cam.

Please use the Forum Search function for a few Topics on using Wyze (+tinyCam for Android) as a way to view their streams or JPG snapshots in ActionTiles.

Thanks Terry. I've just ordered 3 Wyze cams, a second Fire 8 HD and a couple wall mounts for the tablets, so I'm hoping I can figure out how to make them work in Action Tiles.
